Monstress Volume 1

Set in an alternate matriarchal 1900’s Asia, in a richly imagined world of art deco-inflected steam punk, MONSTRESS tells the story of a teenage girl who is struggling to survive the trauma of war, and who shares a mysterious psychic link with a monster of tremendous power, a connection that will transform them both and make them the target of both human and otherworldly powers.

Brad Reads?! Road trip book three; Umbrella Academy Apocalypse Suite. I’ve watched the show (great) but never read the books (Fantastic). This is so much more than the show: characters, costumes, code names. Naturally recommended for fans of the show, but also strong hero-fare. https://t.co/xQW3WC8mEv AustinBooks photo

They need our help & encouragement now. https://t.co/JROlNQLpgb https://t.co/RJO0VcCpoz AustinBooks photo
